My Dear, Don’t Let A Bad Day Make You Think You Have A Bad Life

Like the bad weather today, your bad feeling will end soon.

Yes, it’s very disappointing that the things didn’t go the way you planed them. It’s okay, my dear, because you can still plan and you can still dream. Don’t let a single disappointment take away your patience. Wait and grow while chasing. Make your dreams happen. Don’t let what you feel now stop you from your pursuits.

Yes, it failed. But please remember you are not a failure. You made a lot of missteps, but you are not a mistake. Be kind to yourself. Don’t withhold God’s grace from you. You couldn’t go back to the way things were, but learn from it.

Get up and move forward.

As you step in every failure, show your courage. My dear, show the world that there’s a champion inside of you. Create a new success. Don’t let what you feel now define what you can become.

Yes, anger is no good to you. I know it’s unfair. Remember life will never be fair. Some people don’t know how to care and love better than you do. Maybe others just simply can’t love or care the same you do.

But, my dear, this anger is not who you are. Don’t let this anger steal your compassion. Let it go. Forgive every day. Don’t let what you feel now form you to the person that you are not.

Yes, you can tell that no one understand your pain. It hurts, I know. Everyone has their own pain. You can blame anyone and you can blame your situation. But this will not help. Pain is not your enemy. Don’t resist. Just go through it. Persist until you find its purpose. Don’t let the pain destroy your good heart.

My dear, you are created out of love, therefore let your life speak of love. As people look at you, my dear, be a testimony of an unconditional love.

Lastly, don’t feel lonely. Don’t complain about life. Go and cherish the journey. Don’t rush things. Work wisely. Don’t describe your life by what’s missing. You are the artist of your own life, you choose the colors that give meaning to it. Paint your life with positivity. My dear, be grateful. Don’t let the absence of your necessity and pleasure kill your joy.

Always remember Genesis 1:27-28:

“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

Your bad feeling has nothing to do with your being. You are created in God’s own image, therefore you are a beautiful person. You are meant to bear fruits. You are meant to influence others. You are a person of love, faith, hope, kindness, patience and gentleness. You have authority over your feelings. You can master it and you can manage it.

Don’t let your emotions make you ugly. Don’t let your feelings leave a stain in your being. Every time you’re tempted to dwell in your emotions, please remind yourself, my dear, it alters and it’s impermanent.

Always stick to and be confident with what is real. Be encouraged. Now, my dear, it’s time to go back to your senses.

You are a beautiful person, and it’s just a bad feeling.
